in boston, what was billed as the romney victory situation, now perhaps the saddest room in the country. peter. >> brian, a couple days ago, told us, barack obama's fire wall in ohio was burning. the obama campaign extinguished the fire. take a look around the room right now you can see the sober faces of disappointment here in boston. they knew that ohio was critical to a victory tonight. despite the fact that florida and virginia were still on the board they recognized as soon as ohio went up on the screens that this meant president obama would remain president of the united states. governor romney has been reviewing, watching the returns with his family, alongside his wife ann, five sons, their wives, and 16 of the 18 grandchildren. a short distance away from where we are at the convention center here in boston. as soon as they get the news which obviously they have gotten as well on the screens that they're watching as well, we are anticipating somepoint this evening we'll hear what would be a concession speech from governor romney. remember when he was on his plane earlier today we
in boston. joe biden will vote in delaware before joining him in chicago. tracie pots has the details on the final frantic day of campaigning. tracie, good morning to you. >> reporter: hey, good morning. it may be a frantic day of voting too. this is one of the many polling places soon to open in ohio. take a look at the cincinnati inquirer. the headline, it's all up to us. ohio at the center of the political universe. while this state may, in fact, be important, it wasn't the first to vote. for the first time ever and with its lowest turnout in almost 50 years, a tie this morning in tiny dixville, notch. just after midnight they cast 5 votes for president obama, 5 for governor romney. a few hours south in manchester the governor ends his campaign. >> the last months of our campaign have seen the gathering of strength of a real movement across this country. it's evident in the size of these crowds like this tonight. my goodness. and i understand that there are a few thousand people outdoors that couldn't get in too. >> reporter: after voting near boston this morning, the governor hit
. >> and in boston, a gracious concession from a worthy opponent in the long, hard-fought and extremely expensive race. >> a victorious president obama says we are all in this together. now the work on a second term, creating more jobs, healing the economy, moving forward with health care reforms begins for president barack obama. >>> good morning, everyone, i'm paula faris. >> i'm rob nelson. an abbreviated version of "world news now." we'll check in live with "nightline" in just a second. for right now it is official. america has rehired the president. he won last night. handling the electoral college, and coming back in january for a second term. so it really was kind of a stunning night here. he really -- and most of the battleground if not all, won, fought back romneyen all of the cases. saw a very gracious concession speech from governor romney. clearly disappointed. went to a raucous scene in chicago with the president. still very much a divided country. look at the electoral college it wasn't close. in the popular vote the was really close. i think the points, come out of this, this was n
will be the united states of america. >> romney made his concession speech before his supporters in boston. the loss ends a six-year quest for the presidency for the former massachusetts governor. he lost the republican nomination to john mccain in 2008. romney wished president obama well, but also noted the deep divide amongst the parties in washington and urged leaders to work together. >> the nation as you know is at a critical point. at a time like this, we can't risk partisan bickering and political posturing. our lead verse to reach across the aisle to do the people's work. >> while the electoral college makes this win look far more decisive than the popular vote, that is just one of the quirks of the u.s. electoral voting system that many people worldwide have been learning about. 303, the number of delegates that he has to romney's 206. despite the very close popular vote, again, the electoral college votes make it much more decisive. florida remains a toss-up. clearly not going to make a difference to the overall outcome. 270, that was the number to reesm we knew once we started to get the
at the stage in boston, as a matter of fact, where the crowd, a lot more subdued as you might expect is awaiting mitt romney to step forward and at some point i suspect soon, we will hear from the former governor of massachusetts who as we said is in boston. he will come forward to acknowledge he has been defeated despite running a very tough and hard campaign against an incumbent as has been noted many times, this is the first time since franklin roosevelt has been re-elected with unemployment this high. but here we are. >> that was a key issue in the exit polling tonight, derek. people talking about the economy and trying to find a best way forward. there were so many undecided voters who are trying to decide do we stick with the current course. is it change that we need. the economy and its progress out of one of the worst recessions we have ever seen. a key issue in this undecided women voters. so many elements we didn't even have 4 years ago. >> we talked about how close the election would be. if the numbers hold up and just perhaps president obama gets florida or virginia, the
that gave him more latitude with the conservative base of the party. >> woodruff: speak of boston, and other places, let's hear now from our colleagues-- actually, ray suarez is in chicago. he and margaret warner are at the two presidential campaign headquarters, but, ray, we're going to come to you first. are you in chicago, and that's where president obama is tonight. >> that's right. he's just a few miles away. he's not here yet. and neither are a lot of the senior officials from the campaign. i think they probably want to waito see a little bit more, but illinois senior senator, senator dick durbin is here, and there have been a lot of poll closings, a lot of projections, but so far no surprises. what do you need to see before you can really relax? >> some of the key battled ground states-- florida, virginia, ohio, and of course when we get in the midwest, a little closer to my activity in the last few months for the president, taking a look at wis cons and i know iowa. if we can get the job done in the midwest, and i hope we do glie you're not up thisickle. whn you don't have a race, wh
or when you did. i want to bring gerri willis in, he is at romney headquarters in boston. have they spoken yet? >> reporter: i can't answer that question, but crowd here, that has grown in last hour, wants to believe, wants to believe ma karl rove said, just moments ago, he came up, ottoman ter here, speaking about the number of votes about how the republican party could take ohio, mitt romney could take ohio. huge cheer. came up from audience, people came in to the room, came into the room to listen to what was going on. this crowd now very emotional. i just walked through it people watching the television, trying to discern what is happening, that i want to believe their candidate has not lost. we still have no concession from mitt romney's campaign, 9 or hae we heard they have intention. my colleague next to me carl cameron, he started talking about karl rove's comments, a big cheer went up with the crowd, they wanted to show they are here, and supportive of their candidate. they believe that he should win this election. as moments go by, now it is getting quieter but no less packed thi
the scandal of the boston police department @and spying on activists as well as federalization of local law enforcement. we only have a brief amount of time, but maybe you could talk about those issues and how they relate to the big picture of what has been debated over power militarization of law enforcement, spying on dissidents in general. >> we published a report called the leasing -- policing defense, which has blown the lid off a scandal. the boston police department has been spying on the peaceful activity of antiwar groups and peace groups in the city of boston. this is a major story in boston and unfortunately did not make it to the level of the statewide political race as far as the warren brown contest was concern. that is unfortunate, and that has to change. we saw with the occupied movement, i like to refer to it lifting rocks that showed the unseemly side of what has been going on. you really saw police departments, advanced equipment deployed at largely peaceful protest groups. this problem is getting worse. they will continue to fund the police departments for their federali
with reporters. peter alexander is live at romney headquarters if boston. peter, what's the vibe there? >> reporter: s.e., we can show you live pictures of what's happening right now. mitt romney is touching down in pittsburgh, pennsylvania. you noted the earlier stop in ohio. it was the romney campaign plan for him to go to ohio. governor romney said as long as they're out there, why don't we find another place to stop as well? that's where they came up with pennsylvania. this is significant because one of those states, ohio with 18 electoral votes, is a place he showered with attention. pennsylvania is one that he has largely ignored. here campaign advisers continue to be exceedingly confident he'll do well tonight. i spoke to a source close to the campaign a few minutes ago who said vadz is the lynchpin this evening. it's one of the first states to report back at 7:00 whenle polls close, and they say that's a place to give them a better sense of which direction this night will go. it's a state that the republicans know that they need to win tonight. beyond that advisers say that gov
house campaign and carl cameron who followed the romney campaign is live in boston. >> . >>> it's very, very close, they know it's a needle that needs to be thread, they are just wonder figure it can get done tonight, tomorrow or ever. >> carl cam cameron live with the camp tonight. let's go to ed henry. with the president's camp and live in chicago. hey ed. . >>> you have to be in line when the polls close right? you have to be in line when the polls close and if you are in line then you can stay in line and they promise you will be able to vote. that means people have been in line for at least four hours. how long was the line when they got there? it could have been longer than four hours. that's florida for you tonight. florida. it's always florida. there is the possibility of a recount in florida which frankly now mayor may not matter for the president but you have to do it. >> if it's with in 1% of each other. if you are talking about excitement of voters that's maybe your best indication that voters excited in how dominant the economy was in the election. where there are a lot
ginnis is at romney headquarters in boston and ladies, welcome, good evening. it looks like we have a study in contrasts. mitt romney working the campaign trail in pennsylvania, president obama sitting back doing broadcast interviews, playing a game of basketball. danielle, is he confident or just out of gas? >> reporter: well, derrick, the president says he's confident that he will walk away with a victory tonight. we just got word that he did another round of interviews with tv stationness battleground states like colorado and wisconsin. the republicans know this will be a close race and they want to use every moment they can to encourage their supporters to cast a ballot, derek. >> one of those gop predictions that states in play like pennsylvania could be in play, that romney will steal votes? >> reporter: their concern isn't that great. they feel like they've done a good job in the ground game in the states they can control of the big states are looking at virginia, ohio and florida. they know it's going to be close, but again, they feel like they've put in the work and that the pres
in boston as mitt romney stood before a disappointed crowd. his concession speech was brief and heartfelt as he congratulated the president. >> this election is over but our principles endure. i believe that the principles upon which this nation was founded are the only sure guide for a resurgent economy and to a new greatness. >> reporter: running mate paul ryan returns to the house of representatives as chairman of the budget committee and possibly the president's chief critic there. it is not clear what mitt romney will do next after two unsuccessful runs at the presidency. president obama returns to office with a deeply divided nation and government. congress must get to work right away on a number of issues that threaten to hit american pocketbooks. >>> voters in the free state weighed in on seven key ballot questions. question six, legalizing same- sex marriage passed with about 52% of the vote. governor martin o'malley says the passage of question six sends a message. >> i think it is a really important statement. the people of our
boston. let's begin with ken in chicago with president obama's campaign. >> reporter: this is where president obama will be tonight to hold what his supporters hope will be a victory speech. let's take a quick look at the venue. this is where the president will take to the stage with his family and that of vice president joe biden. what time he makes an appearance depends on the time of the returns. there are seats here for thousands of the president's supporters, most of them will be campaign volunteers, a few of whom president obama thanked this morning when he made a surprise visit to a field office in chicago. he even cold called. >> is this annie? hi, this is barack obama. how are you in i'm doing -- you know... [ laughter ] >> i don't think she knows it's me. >> my name was barack obama. you know, the president of the united states. how are you? you know, can i just say, you were really polite to me when you didn't know who i was. that's so nice. >> reporter: as you can see, it was light work for president obama on this election day afternoon. he even played a game of basketba

our colleague ray swawrers and hopefully we'll be joined by margaret warner in boston. ray is at the presidential candidate night headquarters in chicago. ray, what is the sense right now? when we talk about this ground game issue, what does the campaign say about what they have over the romney campaign in terms of ground game? >> they said this time instead of sending volunteers and sending field workers from state to state, they concentrated much more heavily on using people that people know. i mean it sounds kind of obvious. but all the research shows that when someone you know talks about you... talks to you about casting the vote in the first place or voting for the person you prefer, that has a lot more impact than somebody showing up at your door with paperwork, a leaflet or a pitch for a candidate. so they've put much more emphasis on having people work their own neighborhoods this time around. and they say they have hit their marks, that they are getting out their numbers. and so far so good. gwen? >> ifill: well, ray, i'm also curious. you're standing there at the
had only written one speech when he came into boston on his campaign plane this afternoon and that was a victory speech. obviously he did not give that speech to be the. a very disappointed mitt romney. this is his second run for the white house. and as we told you earlier this evening, his father george romney, when he was secretary of hud and i worked on capitol hill in the early 70s he made a run for the white house in 1968 when he was governor of michigan. mitt romney always says he wish he could fulfill his father's dream and for him to be elected president. but we've seen tonight obviously that has not happened. mitt romney has made it clear that he will not run for president again as i said this is his second run for the presidency. but he says he will remain in politics. he will be a strong political voice in this country. now some of his supporters here as you see are already beginning to leave. some told me this evening after it was projected that mitt romney had lost that they in their words not mine. said that they expected four more years of the same gridlock
, nancy. jan crawford has been covering the romney campaign. she is in boston tonight. jan? >> well, scott, governor romney just landed here about an hour ago after making campaign stops in that key state of ohio and in pennsylvania. he talked to reporters on the way back on the plane and he said he felt good about this campaign. they hadn't left anything in the locker room and that he thinks they're going to win. he said he just finished his victory speech. he's not written a concession speech. now, the mood inside the campaign tonight, scott, is one of cautious optimism, i'd say. but there is a little bit of nervousness and here's why: campaign sources that i'm talking with tonight say they are encouraged by the high numbers of republican turnout they're seeing in these swing states like ohio, florida, virginia. they believe that will outperform john mccain in 2008. that's the key to this election. they really had to run up the score in those areas. but here's where the nervousness comes in. they're also seeing some of the president's turnout in some of those democratic areas like in nor
they will close in ottawa, montana, and utah. alaska closes at 1:00 a.m. eastern time. we're in boston where the romney headquarters is located. the president and his team is in chicago. we're at the rnc headquarters in washington, d.c. and on capitol hill where the democrats are gathering and all evening we will show you the latest results. these are actual numbers. these are not projections as we track the key house, senate, and gov.'s races as well as the presidential race and you can keep track of all this on our website. this is the only network that gives you a forum to express your views in what is happening with results tonight and you can do so by giving us a phone call. the number is 202-730-triples 32.

in boston, where bystanders said, you could hear a pin drop, as the networks called the election for president obama. reports last night that governor romney was so confident in his victory, he had only written one speech beforehand, a victory speech. >> like so many of you, paul and i have left everything on the field. we have given our all to this campaign. [ cheers and applause ] i so wish -- i so wish that i had been able to fulfill your hopes to lead the country in a different direction. >> reporter: but in the end, it was not even close. obama won even those outstanding battlegrounds, like virginia, nevada. >> i just spoke with governor romney. and we may have battled fiercely. but it's only because we love this country deeply. >> reporter: so, george, the question, now, what now? and president obama has said that he will reach out to republican leaders. he wants to meet with mitt romney. he even last night reached out to romney voters. where are some areas of compromise? perhaps tax reform. perhaps immigration reform. we'll see in the days ahead. george? >> that's right. t
that critical 270 vote threshold in the electoral college. he was in boston when he waited for the returns to come in. he spoke to an enthusiastic crowd. he thanked them and said that he had conceded the race to president obama. >> i just called president obama to congratulate him on his victory. his supporters and campaign also deserve congratulations. i wish all of them well but particularly the president, the first lady and their tauters. >> this is a time of great chapel cleng and i pray he will be successful. romney did 294 different campaign stops through out the course of it. even though the election is over he says big challenges still face the country. >> i ran for office because i am concerned about americans. this election is over, i believe the principles with which this nation was founded is the only sure guide to a surging key con me. they thought they had a good fast victory. even iffed mid best to reach the 7270 we needed. >> doug lou saider live in walking the balance of power remains the same for us. ainsley is here to break it down. >> the gop will remain in control of t
. >>> now to all the questions being aimed at romney campaign headquters in boston after a sad night there. and the question, what went wrong in the romney campaign. peter alexander covering for us there tonight. good evening. >> reporter: brian, good evening to you here in boston, this is apparently the intersection of politics and the nor'easter. in the words of one top aide to the romney campaign, the mood in that campaign is a lot like this weather, dreary, at the end of a six-year long quest for the white house. tonight, mitt romney is left asking is himself what might have been. dressed in a business suit and surrounded by family and friends and for a final few hours, the secret service team, mitt romney this morning left his boston hotel, quickly returning to life as a private citizen. >> hey, governor, can you give us a word? >> reporter: on this november 7th, the day romney promised they would get to work, the only work to do, packing up. after 90 minutes after most networks had called the race, mr. romney took the stage alone. >> like so many of you, paul and i have left everythi

to boston to watch the returns in a speech to supporters. we have been speaking to reporters the last couple of days here at c-span, finding out what they think is going to happen on election night. >> we're going to see a pretty consistent pattern across the country. it will start in virginia where the polls closed at 7:00 p.m. burgeon as a contested battleground state. a relatively tight race. the bottom line, it will be a close race. they're good at counting votes and we have a pretty good senate race. if we know that virginia is leaning one way or another, or toward one of the senate candidate, we're going to have a pretty good idea of what the rest of the night is good to look for. keep an eye on virginia. that is an early bellwether, canary in the coal mine for what is coming the rest of the night. in a macro sense what i am looking at is -- what we will see on november 6 is the first normal data point we have seen in eight years. we have not seen what a normal life threat looks like since george of the bush was running for reelection. we will watch how many non-white voter turnout. is
